 Growing up our family had an Elf that came to visit our house.  It was the highlight of my year by far.  Christ was the center of Christmas for our family but my Mom and Dad also let Santa bring us one gift, and fill our stocking with treats.  But having the family Elf come was almost more exciting than Santa.  His name was Chubs and he would come pop his head  in the window and peek to see if we were being good. Then quick as a flash he was gone again.

So this year I decided to start a tradition in our own home Elf On the Shelf.  The story tells how Santa needs helpers to write his naughty or nice list and this new little elf will come stay at your house till Christmas.  He will only move at night and each day you will find him some place new. He can not talk per Santa’s orders, but is always watching to make sure you are good.

 I read the book Elf On the Shelf to my kids (and my Nephews) last night.  They LOVED IT and were even more excited about the elf that is going to live at our house the next 25 days.  They named him Chubs Jr after Grandmas elf… and they are full of excitement to see where he will be each day.

First night we found our Elf On the Shelf…..

In the Barbie house chilling with Barbie… Barbie is taking a swim in the bath tub.  While our Elf Chubs is sitting there talking with her…. oh wait do you see what he is sitting on.  Is that a toilet….

You should have heard the roar of laughter from my kids when they found him!!

We are loving our Elf On the Shelf so much that we are going to give one away to one lucky reader.  Each day we will post a new photo of where our silly elf has been.  We invite you to “Name This Photo” by leaving a comment each day in the comment section below. On the 26th we will pick  a  random winner and ship you your very own Elf On the Shelf for next year!
